HMRC has warned taxpayers to watch out for phishing e-mails and text messages that trick them into thinking they have received a tax rebate. According to HMRC, which is currently processing tax refunds for 2017/18, criminals often use events such as the end of the financial year to target the public. Many phishing e-mails and text messages include links to dubious websites where their information can be stolen. Anyone who receives an unexpected e-mail or text message asking for their PIN or bank details should report it to Action Fraud.
